1987 (age 30)
Adventures in Odyssey (AIO), or simply Odyssey, is an Evangelical Christian-themed radio drama/comedy series created by Focus on the Family in 1987. The series centers on the fictional town of Odyssey, and in particular, an ice-cream emporium named 'Whit's End,' and its proprietor, John Avery Whittaker. This lead role was originally played by Hal Smith through 1994, and then by Paul Herlinger until 2008. Because of small health issues, a mutual decision was made by Herlinger and the crew to replace Herlinger with another voice actor. In September 2009, Andre Stojka took over the role. The show's daily audience averages around 1.2 million within North America. The Odyssey series also includes several spin-off items, including a home-video series, books, and several computer games. John Campbell composed music for over 300 episodes of Adventures in Odyssey.
